New Streamlined Treatment Protocol For Men


      Our hair loss treatment protocol is based upon the latest usable information available from the medical literature, patent registries and individual researchers/physicians.

      It is updated and refined as new information becomes available.

      It has been established that hair loss is multi-factorial. Because of this it is unlikely that a singular treatment that addresses only one mechanism (such as Propecia) will produce a significant result.

      The good news in this is that hair loss can be positively impacted from a multiplicity of angles. Research has shown that there are myriad currently available compounds that benefit hair loss in some way. Our treatment protocol brings this information to you and synthesizes it in a usable format.

      A number of  health promoting hair loss treatment advances have emerged from the bio-tech industry for which patents have been sought or approved. Fortunately the information contained in these patent applications, which are public information, often allows you to use patented compounds years ahead of their commercial release. In many cases what is patented are combinations of compounds that can already be accessed. Of late there have been several patented combinations that have a scientifically well founded base in terms of the elucidated mechanisms of action, and in some cases, pilot studies as they relate to the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia. These combinations have been integrated into our treatment protocol’s primary recommendations.

      Based upon consistently positive feedback, and in some cases overlapping mechanisms of action with our prior treatment recommendationsl, these recent advances have enabled us to streamline our existing protocol, ultimately making it more practical to sustain and less costly to adhere to. Obtaining stabilization of androgen mediated hair loss and hair regrowth no longer necessitates using the entire protocol. We are categorizing treatments based upon feedback and the quality of research presented.


      This, in turn, will enable most to institute an affordable comprehensive treatment protocol that is years ahead of Propecia and Rogaine.

Caveat

      As much as we hate to say it, our current treatment protocol is  less likely to be significantly effective to those who have been slick bald for 10 or more years, (although this group has on occasion, obtained rather dramatic results). Future treatments, currently under development, involving stem cell and genetic interventions, will likely give more satisfactory results to those with long standing hair loss. Estimates as to the wide and affordable commercial availability of these treatments range from 6-15 years.

Treatment Protocol For Men

      Hair loss in younger men is primary a function of male hormones(androgens). The role of androgens in hair loss goes well beyond DHT. Other identified hormonal variables include androstendione, prolactin and estrogen metabolites that when not addressed could readily explain the transient and only partial effectiveness and side effect profile of using either Propecia or Avodart as a sole treatment for MPB.

      Our current focus of treatment emphasizes a topical and systemic neutralizing of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) via 5-alpha-reductase inhibition, prolactin downregulation, and androstendione reduction via enterolactone. It also encompasses reducing androgen and estrogen binding at receptor sites, and increasing of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).

      Additional factors of a non-hormonal nature that are addressed in our treatment protocols include inflammation, free radical activity, decreased microcapillary perfusion(follicle blood supply), and reduced peripheral NO expression .

      Studies have shown that androgen related activity in the scalp of men with hair loss in their 20’s is more than double that of men with hair loss in their 50’s. It has also been established that non-balding men have higher levels of SHBG, *higher* testosterone (seems counterintuitive, but it's true), and lower DHT and estrogen than their balding counterparts. Because age related factors in hair loss such as inflammation, fibrosis (localized collagen rigidification), and decreased microcapillary perfusion are significant, but generally not as pronounced in younger men, they typically enjoy a much better response to anti-androgenic treatments, compared to men over 45. For those over 45, senescent (age related) thinning can be juxtaposed on an existing androgen hair loss condition, making matters more challenging from a treatment standpoint. These age-related non-hormonal variables that contribute so significantly to senescent thinning are addressed in our treatment protocols as well.

Dietary Considerations


      It has been established many times over that male and female pattern hair loss in Asian countries baldness is a fraction of what it is in the United States. It has also been established that the incidence of hair loss in these populations increases in urban environments and even moreso in those that have relocated to the U.S. Every study without exception points to diet as the primary and perhaps only variable in this phenomena. Given the likely prophylactic effects of Green Tea, Soy, Curcumin, Coconut Oil and other lignans consumed regularly in the diets of Orientals and Indians in rural areas, this comes as no great surprise.

      Systemic inflammation plays a central role in hair loss and can either function to exacerbate or ameliorate hair loss. The following article goes into some detail about this connection. Diet, Inflammation, and Hairloss

      In a nutshell, a “Mediterrasian” diet (blending traditional staples of Mediterranean and Asian diets) consisting largely of Seafood, Olive Oil, Fish Oil, Coconut Oil, Soy foods, Sea Vegetables, Green Tea, Red wine, vegetables and low glycemic fruits consumed raw, with occasional whole grains, in a manner that facilitates insulin management, would appear most conducive to hair growth and hair loss prevention.

      A diet high in trans fats, white flour, refined sugar, and high glycemic starches can wreak havoc on even the most comprehensive hair loss treatment protocol for a number of different reasons.

What to Expect on this Treatment Protocol

      In addition to its hair growth/hair loss prevention effects, this protocol (with the exception of Nizoral and Propecia) and dietary guidelines will confer multiple health benefits. These include, but are not limited to increased energy, increased libido, cognitive enhancement, decreased systemic inflammation, a significantly reduced risk of cancer or cardiovascular event, firmer skin, improved complexion, reduced bodyfat, and the list goes on. In many ways this treatment protocol functions as an anti-aging regime with an emphasis on hair growth.

      Remember, ascertainable hair growth effects for any treatment typically take 3-6 months or longer. When Proscar first came on the market in ’92, many tried it for hair growth for a few months and the general concensus was it didn’t work. Subsequent research showed that benefits in many cases don’t begin to manifest until 6 months or longer. As we know Proscar, became FDA approved for the treatment of hair loss at 1/5 the original dose and was renamed,”Propecia.” Our treatment protocol is an anti-aging regime that is designed to prevent hair loss, and over time, facilitate hair growth.
